Make Your Own Shaving Soap
Here's an idea for holiday gifts (or maybe just for your own shaving pleasure): make your own shaving soap!
"A warning - once you try a real soap to shave with, you'll never use a commercial shaving cream again! This recipe, which you can tailor and modify to suit your own oil preferences, is not much different than a regular cold process soap recipe except for some added cosmetic clay and a higher percentage of castor oil. The clay helps give the soap extra "slip" and also works to purify your skin. (Think of a clay or mud mask.) The added castor helps give a thick creamy lather. All you need to do is grab a shaving brush."
